About Program

Ethnic Studies classes at Moorpark College reframe and centralize the experiences of African Americans, Asian Americans, Chicano-Latinos, and Native Americans in the United States. Not just a passive study, Ethnic Studies emphasize resistance and liberation in order to eliminate all forms of injustice and racial oppression.

Why Take Ethnic Studies?

Students who take these courses are better-informed American citizens and are uniquely positioned to enter an increasingly diverse workforce. Through the study of power and its linkages to race, ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality students gain an understanding of historical movements for social transformation, resistance, and liberation.
